^ That is because it airs TUE 8PM.

ETA: TVD was okay. We got the story of doppelgängers and crazy Qetziyah.

Re: The Vampire Diaries & The Originals

I totally like the Originals better than VD. Most of my favorite characters left for the Originals.

I think both shows are doing better since they halved the cast. There were too many characters and some got the short shrift.

Right now the only thing keeping me watching VD is:
1. Catherine
2. The actor that plays Stefan seems to be having a ball as Silas.
3. I am intrigued by Caroline's new man.

I think it is because the storytelling is more adult. There is angst and drama but it is not teenage angst and drama. I can relate to it more (as much as anyone can relate to a show about rich supernatural beings), because it is not about high school or college.

Plus, the characters are not as whiny. I have noticed that Klaus and Becs have been more take charge and less woe is me. I can actually feel for them now because they are not constantly throwing pity parties of one.

Joseph Morgan is getting to give Klaus a greater range of emotions and Claire Holt is getting to play a Rebecca that is still vulnerable but not as openly needy. Haley is allowed to move out snark mode. Elijah has always been fabulous.

I actually like the new actresses playing Sophie and Cami. Marcel is intriguing and infuriating.

The only person I don't really care for is Davina. I hope she buys the farm soon.

Does anyone think that the "garden" is going to come back and bite Marcel in the butt? He has walled up/ confined vamps there for who knows how long. What happens when someone takes it into their head to set them all free?

I have not watched this week's VD. I will do so over the weekend.

Re: The Vampire Diaries & The Originals

So the wolf watching Haley was not just some fluke thing to make us think WTH? The wolf evidently follows her and is her protector. Once again they pointed out the mark on her shoulder. I think she is part of a very old and powerful werewolf clan. Did you hear the wolf howling out in the woods as she was getting ready to escape the house?

I think Klaus showed his hand a bit too early in relation to Davina. Perhaps she will keep her mouth shut and Marcel will be none the wiser?

Marcel is not as all powerful as he first appeared. His secret weapon is growing weary of her confinement and that priest seems to have something over him. Plus, his other vamps seem to be nursing a grudge over him bricking up his right hand man.

The compulsion Klaus used on Cami shows that he is still a very much an end justifies the means kind of guy.

I am glad that Elijah is out of the box.

I think Rebecca envies Haley and is beginning to like the wolf girl just a bit.

Sophie was conspicuous by her absence. I guess next week she will have to deal with the fallout of a few of the witches betraying her.

Re: The Vampire Diaries & The Originals

What did Tyler look like as a wolf? LOL. I'd hope it was him before he returns to TVD. I am guessing this wolf is a new one?

Good EP. I actually felt bad for Davina.

I really am liking Cami.

ELIJAH!!!

Everyone knows Bonnie is "dead". Yes!

Matt knows he has a "Passenger" and needs to protect that knife. Yes!

Stefan realizes Damon & Elena suck. Yes!

Anyway...surprised to see Tyler. And another Birdy - Without A Word song for a funeral.

Moonstone, anyone?

But whatever, it's still staying interesting and I like the emphasis on this show on family vs romance, although the moment between Elijah and Haley was... wow!

Then again, all moments with ELIJAH!!!!! are wow.

Speaking of Moonstone it seems we are at it again on TVD with this Anchor.

Damon is a moron. Kat has a daughter and they both seem smart enough to deal with Silas...guessing she had vamp blood in her system...Kat is too smart just to show up at the Salvatore's house with Silas wanting her.

Tyler is off to take on Klaus...maybe it was him looking after Hayley.

Re: The Vampire Diaries & The Originals

I finally got caught up on these after falling behind a couple weeks, and I am still enjoying them both quite a bit. I think I'm enjoying this season of TVD more than I did the end of last season.

The Originals - Well they made Marcel look strong but looks like that is short lived. I am liking Davina. Klaus seemed more worried than he should by Cami's threat.

Re: The Vampire Diaries & The Originals

Cool.
This week is a TVD/TO crossover, which will feature a confrontation between Klaus and Tyler. I'm wondering if Haley's wolf is going to turn out to be Tyler.

Re: The Vampire Diaries & The Originals

At first I assumed the wolf protecting Haley would turn out to be a member of her family. Marcel ran the werewolves out of the Quarter and into the Bayou.

But, Marcel did toss out a throwaway line about how could a wolf change when there was not a full moon? Tyler is a hybrid like Klaus and can change at will. That coupled with Tyler's get Klaus campaign, makes me think the wolf watching/protecting Haley is Tyler.

Does Tyler know the part Haley played in the massacre of the hybrids and subsequent death of his mother? She tipped Klaus off to help Professor Shane in the wake Silas plot. (I imagine Kol is still shouting I was right bitches from the grave.)

I like that the Originals emphasizes family.

I don't think Klaus felt threatened by Cami. Rather I took it that he was sad that he lost an opportunity for a real friendship by manipulating her.

I wonder what Sophie will pull out of her bag of tricks next? I imagine she is down but not out.

Line of the episode had to go to Elijah when Rebecca asked who they had to kill? How did it go? Probably no one. Possibly everyone.
